So by "football" you mean "soccer?"

The name 'soccer' comes from 'Association Football' so basically they're the same thing. What you call 'football' should be called 'American Rugby'.

I know nothing about emoticons, so just imagine a smiley, winky, tongue in cheek here.

Just logged on,so I'm a bit behind the politics. I can assure you all I'll have my usual extreme left-wing opinion.
In the mean time here's a note for Snori,who I think only lives a few miles down the road from me. Glad you've told our US friends about the origin of "soccer". Did you know that for my generation (50 year-old ex-player) "football" is Rugby League? (As opposed to "rugger" union.) If an Aussie says "footie" he means League.
Right,back to politics. I've been wearing my Deadheads for Obama t-shirt in the pub (watching "soccer") this evening. I got it signed by the members of Living Colour on Friday in Tilburg. 3 years ago when Living Colour played Manchester they ranted all night about Bush. This time Corey Glover sang in an orange jump-suit,but it was only at the end when Doug Wimbish said,"Fuck George Bush." Is Doug becoming an old softie? I doubt it,I think he knows the GOP is a dead duck.
Living Colour were magnificent. I know a lot of contributors to this site appreciate good music, so check them out when they return to the US... And Fuck George Bush!!

Those are called "emoticons?" This thread has been a wealth of information for me.

I thought he was referring to an athletic cup (ball armor).
